PXR-6 Ultranoir

The PXR-6 has been revamped on the inside, but functions and looks the same on the outside.

The functions remain the same and are simple, clear and to the point: time and date on a dark background with light type. And when the light button is pressed, it glows with beautiful blue light. The bracelet is almost an inch wide and can be adjusted to a minimum length of 6.5″ (16,5 cm) or a maximum of 8.25″ (21 cm).

Naoto Fukasawa and Issey Miyake Watch

My favorite product designer (Naoto Fukasawa) and one of my favorite fashion designers (Issey Miyake) have teamed up to make a pretty cool watch.

Case designed after the shape of a hexagon wrench, representing the simple beauty of tools.

Disk fixing the integral-type leather band. The caseback is installed beneath it.

Minimalist design in its ultimate form. Each angle of the dodecagon glass represents the hour.

Who: Manufactured by Seiko, Designed by Naoto Fukasawa with Issey Miyake.

Round Ring by 22designstudio

Recently DesignBoom was selling some of 22designstudio’s rings, and they sold out in a flash. I was lucky enough to get one, and I’ve got to say I love it.  The rings are made of Stainless and concrete, and the concrete feels surprisingly smooth.

“Drawn freehand by the designer, the circular frame of this ring acts as
the beginning of a dialog between the designer and the person wearing
it. The circular design creates ever-lasting space for communication
and interaction between creator and receiver, designer and customer.”

Shell & Silver Onyx Ring by Mesi Jilly

At first glance I had a rather negative response to this ring- it’s huge, made from a cowrie shell, a little too luxury-in-excess etc., but after looking at it a while I kind of love it, probably for the same reasons. And, yes, you did read that right, it’s $800.

Faceted onyx nestled in a wreath of silver droplets sits atop natural cowrie shell, hollowed to accommodate ring sizes 6-8. Black.

Whole and half sizes 6-8.
